Lifelong Students

Grateful to be studying with these fantastic humans … 500-hour yoga teacher training at @hipyogapgh … THE BEST YTT around IMHO … comprehensive, broad AND deep, uplifting & challenging. Steeped in the Himalayan Tradition, passed along for centuries … AND conscientious of and adaptive to modern life!

πŸ“š I’m about halfway through the 18-month program … It’s intense!

We are all in different paths in our yoga journeys. You may be on your 1,000th class, or you may be thinking about attending your first.

You may be sharing yoga practices for the first time, or be in your 20th year of teaching.

You may be into physical practice … or meditation … or studying ancient texts.

There are many ways to “practice” yoga that don’t involve making shapes with the body.

We are all students together. Let’s be dedicated ones.

What are you learning from your yoga practice these days?

I practice & share Hatha Yoga for a simple reason -- it works. Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition is a holistic system of philosophy & practices passed down through an unbroken 5,000 year lineage of Himalayan sages. What Hatha Yoga is not: trendy, bendy or one-&-done. What Hatha Yoga is: a systematic approach to uncovering the real, authentic YOU in body, mind & spirit. Hatha Yoga cultivates well-being, stability, clarity & ease in modern life through traditional, time-tested practices. I also recognize both our shared humanity & our differing privileges & barriers -- I am a cis-gendered white female with a graduate degree, who has dealt with family trauma & an eating disorder. My goals in my own practice include to cultivate awareness of my own privileges & social conditioning, unlearn & re-learn in order to be mindful & take compassionate action toward a more beautiful, just & peaceful world for ALL humans, creatures & our Earth. I'm making mistakes daily, & hopeful that I'm falling forward toward these goals & vision. I hope we can walk our paths & support each other along the way.
